    ^^ indeed. (Agreeing with Boombastic sloth)

    It may be that in actual fact Gigabyte refuse the RMA. Technically if they test it and no components are faulty on it to do with the scorching then they will assume the PSU killed the board and bill the OP for their time before they will release the mobo.

    Everyone makes mistakes from time to time, but this sounds more like a catalog of errors. A PC from a known good independant may be a good idea. They advertise in mainstream PC magazines and are actually quite competitive. For instance I can get a P55 i5 750 with 4GB of 9-9-9-28 1600 RAM and a 500GB Spinpoint F3 plus GTX 260 for less than 500, and that's OC'd to 3.6GHz-3.8GHz (they only guarantee what they can get form each individual CPU, but always at least 3.6GHz).

    Do some more research, sit down and really read the precautions needed when building a rig.

    • Assemble it outside the case and test all components first
    • When mounting into the case fit the PSU first if possible and have the flex plugged into the PSU and outlet but with the wall/PSU switch off. This means the case is earthed. Alternatively earth yourself to a pipe/radiator regularly
    • NEVER ever plug and unplug any connection with the power on. Unless it is designed to be hot swapped like some HD's, USB keys etc, power down first. Definitely do not mess with power leads with the PC on.
    • Take your time and be patient. Many problems can occur if someone tries to rush a build, excited to get their rig running ASAP. If a job's worth doing it's worth doing well!

    As always good suggestion. Even though it is a little big off topic, another good reason to mount the PSU first in the case is to run your 4 or 8pin EPS/ATX 12v Power plug behind the mobo tray and up through the top hole of the mobo tray before mounting your mobo. Some cases have smaller holes or may not have holes for wire management for that 4/8pin plug which may make it more difficult if the mobo is installed before the psu. It will also give you an option to feed it through the hs cutout on the mobo tray if there are no holes cut out at the top of the case.

    Like Psycho mentioned, always ground yourself. Touching the back of a case when the power supply plug is inserted into the wall or touching the screw off a light switch is another way. Just make sure the screw has some of the paint removed otherwise it will be insulated and you won't be grounded. This reminds me of an incident when I told a buddy to ground himself when I was helping him assemble his computer. He would touch the back of the computer case a few times and looked at me with pride that he was grounding himself and knew what he was doing. I laughed and said, you dumba$$, the psu isn't even plugged into the wall switch yet. bhabhbahahahah.

    Whenever I plug or unplug components on computers that aren't hot swappable, I turn off all power, and even unplug the electric plug from the back of the psu. I even turn off monitor and unplug monitor power plug. I then ground myself by touching the screw on the light switch.
